An innovation, but surely less amazing than what they say.

The specific thermal capacity of glass is not very high (less than 1 J / g / K, like concrete. Plaster is 4 to 5 times more, water too, but what is the quantity of gel between? the windows?)), and the glass only represents a small area compared to the walls, at least for a single-family house: therefore the restitution in the evening will not weigh heavily.
For insulation, you have to see. They do not specify in what types of building their measurement was made or how, and this is essential, nor the degree of opacity and on which part of the spectrum, it is not a question of living in the dark either.
If it's an Irish cottage, considering the size of the windows, I doubt the efficiency. If it's a tall all-glass building, maybe, but at what cost?
